but ST III was quite appreciated in its day.
Exactly. I still have, somewhere, a few newspaper movie reviews which favored Trek III over II. Saying TWOK "pads, rather than fills, the wide screen" and that TSFS caught the flavor of the TV series more. "Leave it to Lenoard Nimoy to really understand the characters."

TSFS's fall from grace always felt like "guilt by association" because of the odd-numbered thing.
I remember that our local paper,The Seattle Times,thought that ST III was the best Trek film to date.

True story: I first saw #3 at a special screening hosted by James Doohan and organized by a local Trek fan club. As I recall, a good time was had by all . . . .
